  1. NFL 2017 changes?

    Also as a falcons fan, i think it looks even worse, sorry. the sleeve cap striping doesn't translate well to this template, having even less real estate now, and it still looks so outdated. they've had many opportunities to change this look and i'm extremely disappointed that they still haven't-- especially this latest opportunity with the new stadium.
  2. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I'm gonna disagree a bit here and say that the Spurs were in need of a slight refresh... their look, while iconic, is so boring. The shorts logo and the wordmark simplification I kind of like, its the type of subtle change that can switch things up and align the uniforms with the modifications they made to their branding, while also keeping it obvious that it's the Spurs. BUT the cut of the arm trim, the side panel overlapping, and the bottom of the shorts are all annoying downgrades. One step forward, one step back. All that said, my favorite look of theirs is the black on black numbers. While not as legible, it was a unique feature that you didn't forget.
  3. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Did the Magic lose that weird swoopy stripe at the bottom of the shorts? If so, underrated upgrade. The Disney sponsor is probably also the least offensive of all of the sponsors so far. I remember really loving the Grizzlies set like 10 years ago. I'm still fine with the color palette, and it is a little more unique now that other teams (nuggets, jazz) have gone away from the light blue + dark blue fad from the mid 00's. BUT at the same time i don't think it has aged particularly well... possibly because of small downgrades like losing the inner stroke on the number font and losing the logo from the shorts. It makes it seem way more plain. EDIT : good point in the posts right above-- the nike template doesn't do wonders for these curved design elements. that also downgrades the Grizz look a bit.
  4. Nuggets unveil new uniforms*

    Also the wordmark on these is kinda funky and unique... the current wordmark is one of the more generic fonts in the league. The lack of white in these truly makes the color scheme shine. if the dark blue accent in the side panel was white, all of the colors would be muddled.... similar to the problem with the uniforms that were just released.

    I would say probably because of $$. If fans have bought a lot of the yellow "the city" jerseys, having a totally new spin on "the city" like we see above could improve jersey sales even more
  6. NHL 2017-18

    Predators did the right thing. They are the only team really pushing yellow as the main color, so this fits. I think the yellow jerseys contrast enough with all other teams in the league where they couldve gotten away with white shoulders... So basically the inverse of this road uni that they just unveiled. It's weird that the yellow jersey doesn't even have the blue shoulder stripes to create adidas version of a "phantom yoke" . Don't like that inconsistency. The road is far superior to the home.
  7. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I don't know, I think the change is so minor that most fans will not notice. And the uniforms are still very clearly the Bulls, nothing like the Heat. I think that the random addition of the 4-star flag motif of the shorts waist is far more offensive in chicago's update. It seems really out of place. I don't think the Bulls will be the only team with the color at home jersey and it seems like the NBA is encouraging color-vs-color, so I think you're going to continue seeing a lot of unique matchups. it wont be as simple as "if my team wears a color at home, you see a red vs white matchup every time" type of thing. The Bulls will primarily wear red at home lets say, but unless a team wears red on the road, you will see red vs black if the spurs come to town, red vs green if the celtics come to town, red vs blue if the warriors come to town, etc. Plus i bet a bunch of these teams will choose to wear their alternates or throwbacks at home, as well. the "association and icon", or whatever it's called, thing that nike is pushing, I just read that as: the league is shifting away from the white at home paradigm, things will get crazier, players will be allowed to choose what they wear, one-off alternates, etc. the league will continue to move towards what nike is doing with college football. brands will be more fluid, and just like college football, it'll be harder to tell by a quick glance at the screen which team is wearing which color and which team is at home.

    It could help them be different, but wouldn't look great. I don't think it looks bad in the context of their old alternate jersey, but from a broader perspective of how it would be used across all uniforms and promotional stuff.... idk, having both navy and black in the color palette totally muddles the identity, I think. Would the shoulders of the white uniform be black or navy? Would black ever be able to touch navy or would it ALWAYS have to have a line of white or red separating it? Just look at the recent Cavaliers uniforms. So unnecessary, just pick either black and navy as your dark accent and stick with it. Also, Butler basketball has had some atrocious uniforms in the past just because navy and black are used side by side and you can't even see the difference on TV.

    The image on the mothership seems to include a slightly different collar for the Coyotes?
  10. NBA Changes 2017-18

    So if i understand this correctly, teams can choose whether they want their main home uniform to be light and dark, and then the road team has to choose a "clash" from their collection of uniforms?
  11. NHL 2017-18

    Wasnt expecting this but LOVE the white gloves and against the grey it solidifies a unique look for the league. I originally thought that Vegas would look very very similar to the Ducks original 2006 rebrand (the color balance of the logos still are rather similar), but it just isn't the case, they have created their own aesthetic. Definitely impressed. People are bringing up a good point that they will get scuffed.... but white goalie pads get scuffed up too and no one really cares, it's part of the game.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    Wow... I was REALLY in to the Avs and Canes home sweaters but both of them kind of dropped the ball with the roads, just downgrades the set as a whole. edit: does anyone have any good pictures of the under-arm design of the Senators? It looks even worse now, from the images I've seen (was that even possible??), due to the way the white patch abruptly ends near the under-arm. The white under-arm panel used to be attached to the black panel coming up from under the sleeves. I don't know if we have enough good pictures to even properly discuss this. The all-black collar and block number design for them are decent improvements I'd say, but i think they somehow downgraded the old abstract edge template
  13. NHL 2017-18

    Also if you rewind back to the EDGE takeover of 2007 the league has improved it's overall color balance and vibrancy sooooo much. Flyers were in black. Wild were in red. Stars were in black. Predators were in navy. oilers were in navy. There weren't ANY orange, green, or yellow teams. We now have those plus a charcoal grey team. So much better. Now for the Kings to go back to purple...
  14. NHL 2017-18

    Wow BOTH carolina and colorado have one of these rare shifts of going from a potentially bottom-5 uni in the league to potentially top-10 Meanwhile new jersey goes from a decent look to a very unfinished one.
